You've screwed up. Bad. We all do it, but you've got some serious apologizing to do. You need to be careful because you can easily dig yourself into an even bigger hole than you were originally in.

Apologizing can be a seriously sticky situation. It can get ugly really quick. So be very careful when planning an apology.

Each person has different reactions. Some jump to anger, some cry, some give you the silent treatment. Be prepared. You can’t go in with all your emotions swinging.

The first step is to mean it when you apologize. If you’re not genuine, you’re not going to get anywhere with your apology.

Then you have to approach the situation based on who you’re apologizing to. Whether it’s your girlfriend, boyfriend, mother or friend, you’ve got to approach it differently.

Every zodiac sign reacts differently when you approach them to apologize, so take caution.

You may be approaching someone angry or hurt, so just be genuine and serious.

And if you’re still not quite sure if you’ve got this under control, here's how to apologize to each zodiac sign when you’ve messed up bad.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Be ready to kiss some serious butt, because Aries will never let you get away with anything less. Also be prepared for some yelling from Aries' aggressive side, because it’s likely to come out the moment you start to apologize.

Let her release all that anger because as soon as she’s done, she’s ready for a serious conversation about what you both can do to make the situation better.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus loves to have productive and responsible conversations, so don’t even bother beating around the bush. She will likely listen to what you say, but really she just wants to talk about how she feels and why she’s right, because she’s about as stubborn as they come.

Don’t even think about trying to compromise, because she won’t. Just say you’re sorry, she’s right, and move along!

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Don’t leave Gemini hanging too long — she hates being alone.

The silent treatment won’t work at all on this one, so get to apologizing as quick as possible or she will likely be having a nervous breakdown while waiting for your apology.

She will change how she feels a million times during your apology, but don’t lose patience or they may break down again. Be gentle with this softie!

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

It won’t be too difficult to apologize to Cancer; she will probably accept any apology you give her.

As long as you don’t make her cry, she’ll always forgive you. Don’t take advantage of this, because Cancer is so loyal, she often doesn’t know when someone is walking all over her.

Be kind and mean what you say, because you may end up hurting her more in the end with empty promises.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Step one: physical touch. A hug, a hand-hold, whatever it is, that physical closeness makes apologizing to a Scorpio a million times easier.

They also have a pretty bad temper, so be prepared for some dramatic slamming of doors before she comes back and cuddles next to you. She's quick to anger but once she simmers down she'll open up for you.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Honestly, good luck getting Capricorn to forgive you. It rarely happens.

She is about as unforgiving as they come, so the moment you screw up, they pretty much hate you. It’s worth a shot trying to apologize, but best of luck to you.

Be cautious, expect to apologize, like, at least 100 times, and you should probably bring her some sort of gift to make up for it.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Get ready for some passive-aggressiveness, because that’s what Aquarius knows best.

She’s pretty stubborn and uncompromising, so start out firm with your apology and don’t give her the chance to storm off, because she probably will. She runs from emotions, so it’s less about her forgiving you and more about her hiding from her feelings.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces is a dreamer and an artist, so when you hurt her feelings or make her mad, she tends to go silent. She enjoys time alone, but when it’s charged by an argument, she lets herself wallow and play the victim.

Don’t let her run from you or write broody poetry alone in her room; corner her and force her to listen to your apology. Once she actually hears you out, maybe she'll be a bit more understanding.

Don't go too far though, obviously. If she needs her space and isn't budging, let her be on her own for a bit until you try it again. Honestly, she'll probably be appreciative of you taking real time to make things better.
